Kentwood High Magnet School held its 2019 Holiday Soft Skills Ambassador Training on Dec. 19, 2019, at the Golden Corral Buffet & Grill in Hammond, La. The Ambassador Training was open to all 4-H Club members, in grades 7th – 12th, that attend the school.
Forty youth attended the training and worked cooperatively with each other to foster a real-life application of teamwork. Youth Ambassadors were also tasked during a working Christmas Luncheon to create their own personal quotes about teamwork to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be part of the team.
Tahlia Carter, an 8th-grade ambassador at Kentwood High Magnet School, said the quote “alone we can do so little, together we could do so much” resonated with her the most.
As part of the training, youth organized assembly lines to package canned goods, toys, and coats to donate to God’s Store House Thrift Store just in time for the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays.
